"Ahmad Alaadeen has the sound of peace in his horns. This reflects his philosophy about life; he is a man of peace. While listening to ‘Grace’, from his ‘New Africa Suite’, I was both intrigued and soothed at the same time. His solos flow seamlessly out of the melodies of each composition with a thematic development that will have you wondering where the solo starts and the melody ends. I believe that ‘New Africa Suite’ is Alaadeen’s most important project to date. His tone on both the tenor and soprano are one of the most beautiful and compelling sounds in jazz."
Bobby Watson, International Jazz Artist
"Listeners are immediately engaged from the very first track of the disc to explore the polyrhythmic grooves that are complemented by Alaadeen's thoughtful use of world music percussion; the rich and accessible complex jazz harmonies of each piece; Alaadeen's logically crafted and expertly composed melodies; and, the myriad of aural adventures that each of the individual soloists bring to the music. This is truly music that has been captured in its most creative context"
